Generally speaking, an HOA is not there to mediate neighbor to neighbor disputes. Either buy earplugs or call the cops.

The law:
NPC Law Library: Houston TX Noise Ordinance

If the problem is noise and you believe that the noise is above the noise ordinance then HPD asks that you call 832-394-0000. This number should only be used for noise complaints and is not to be used for emergencies or in anyway to replace calling 9-1-1. Calling this number will allow a rapid response by an officer with a noise meter to hopefully arrive while the noise is occurring.

Cops will take care of that. In my old house the guy two houses away from me used to have this wild swinger, drugs, pool parties. None of that was my business except the loud music around midnight. I could hear the music in my bedroom..Cops were called by various neighbors 3 times on them and the cops were really nice about it. 4th time the cops weren't as nice and most of the folks including the owner went down for drugs. Ooopsss

We also tried the talking nicely about it route but that didn't work. O well.....

My wife normally just calls the cops. Sometimes I will go over and ask that they keep it down. Especially when my neighbors behind us were shooting off fireworks in their back yard. Wasn't even 4th of July. I am finding since we happen to have a large Indian population that they like to celebrate their Indian holidays with fireworks and loud Bollywood music.

The new number to call is HPD's non-emergency line: 713-884-3131. Just tell them you would like to file a noise complaint and they will ask you the address and a few follow up questions and they tend to be random. The first few times they asked me if any of the suspects are African-American or Latino specifically. The most recent time they asked me if any of the suspects appear to be mentally-challenged.

I don't know how efficient they are. I also don't know if they ever showed up as the only reason I ever called them were because people would go into the community pool after the closing time of 10PM and make noise. The people generally leave before the cops showed up. Perhaps the cops did show up and asked them to leave. I would prefer to think it's the latter so I know my tax dollars are at work.

Call the cops and be DONE with their inconsiderate crap!
Another option if you have access, shut their breakers off or pull their fuses! I have done this with past neighbor scum when they partied in the wee hours during the week!
Very effective since it's hard to party in the dark when you're S**t faced!

do what that dude in the news did recently. just go over and shoot them. that will quiet them up a bit.


but seriously. why would you not want to call the police? either its not that bad, and you should just deal with it. maybe turn up your tv or get earplugs.
or it is that bad, and you should call the police and get it taken care of.

You assume police actually comes out to take care of it.
